FESTON - cabinet
Feston is both a cabinet of curiosities as it is a curiosity in itself. It’s inspired by the wonder room and its main goal is to start a conversation.
It is a cabinet that breaks the archetypical rules of furniture. Through analysis of a cabinet and trying to achieve its opposite, the mundane cabinet was translated into its fable counterpart.
It’s aesthetics are both Sharawagi as bombed, inspired by Rococo style. As a cabinet mostly exists out of horizontal planes, they are avoided as much as possible.
Feston is a three hatch: a bar cabinet with glasses, books and your finest bottles, a showcase for your collections and a cabinet to charge your mobile devices.
When the cabinet is closed it’s a sculpture, by opening it the user entertains his guests by letting them have a peek into his life.
